Sherlock, Barts and Body Parts

wellingtongoose:

Why is Sherlock able to bring body parts back home and keep them in the fridge?

Why is no one remotely surprised to see him wandering about Barts Hospital using all the scientific research facilities?

We see so much of Sherlock working in Bart’s Hospital that we seldom stop to question how and why he is allowed such privileged access. Mike Stamford knew exactly where to find Sherlock, suggesting that he often comes to conduct experiments.

Many people have simply assumed that Molly gives Sherlock access to Barts but you cannot simply bring a friend into the morgue, or allow him to conduct experiments using state of the art equipment. Laboratories have strict security protocols and monitored CCTV because they often contain highly dangerous substances.

Sherlock clearly has his own connection with Bart’s Hospital and it is most likely that he has entirely legitimate access to its facilities. 

I explore:

  • What Sherlock did before he went into crime solving
  • Why he is able to freely use Bart’s Hospital research facilities and morgue
  • How Sherlock manages to take body parts home

PSA

Hey guys,

I have to apologise for not being around anymore - my laptop has decided to give up and die a month ago (it has come back several times to die again shortly afterwards). Today it decided to come back again but I have no idea how long it will last so I am using the opportunity to let you all know I might still not be around for a while because Tumblr app needs TO DIE IN THE MOST HORRIBLE WAY POSSIBLE. In other words, I can’t use Tumblr on my phone and certainly not in the office. I did order a new laptop, it should arrive next week.

Stay tuned. xx

  • Ardy: Yes, we need to talk about John Watson losing people, I think.
  • Lyndsay: Yeah.
  • Curly: Yeah, mostly because I really want… I wanted series three to end this way, but I want series 4 really to end with Garridebs.
  • Ashley: Yes.
  • Lyndsay: Oh my God…
  • Curly: John Watson loses everyone, and then Sherlock Holmes loses John Watson.
  • Lyndsay: Girl, you have to admit though, that half the reason you want that, is for feels.
  • Curly: Yes.
  • Lyndsay: But part of the reason you want that is that we’re guaranteed another season afterwards.
  • Curly: Yes. Yes.
  • Lyndsay: Because it’s another cliff hanger, and they cannot leave us hanging, so that means season 5.
  • Curly: But it would also play off of His Last Vow, it would ensure that Sherlock completely messes that up, that obviously Mary will be dying at some point, so he will fail on that account, and then if Watson gets shot, and he’s bleeding out, then he’s failed on that point, and it would be completely crumbling, that he’s failed. And I want that.
  • Lyndsay: You’re right, I want that too, but they’re going to do it, they’re just going to muck with his tender little spirit.
  • Curly: I can’t wait.

What’s more topical than Otters Who Look Like Benedict Cumberbatch? Yes, it’s Otters Who Look Like Benedict Cumberbatch Doing The Ice Bucket Challenge!

Unfortunately, otters find it rather difficult to donate to the MND Association in the UK or the ALS Association in the US, but I’ve heard they make particularly cute squeaky noises of gratitude when human beings make a donation instead…

The WATSON AND HOLMES Kickstarter needs a lot more help if we’re going to make it to $20,000!  If we make it, you’ll get to see my adapated versions of “The Solitary Cyclist,” starring Violette Okeke-Smith, as well as “A Scandal in Bohemia,” starring the infamous indie vocalist Irene Adlero.
WATSON AND HOLMES, conceived by New Paradigm Studios’ Publisher BRANDON PERLOW and writer/artist PAUL MENDOZA, is a re-envisioning of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson as African Americans living in New York City’s famous Harlem district. Watson, an Afghanistan war vet, works in an inner-city clinic; Holmes, a local P.I. who takes unusual cases.
The physical investment reward copies printed in this Kickstarter will only be printed for this campaign as a Kickstarter exclusive. NO WHERE ELSE. Plus all physical WATSON AND HOLMES copies will be signed by the creative team. 
Not to mention we have a slew of other exciting investment returns that include being drawn in one of our premiere titles to original artwork done by Rick Leonardi, N.Steven Harris, Dennis Calero, etc.

As you can see from the artwork alone, WATSON AND HOLMES is an amazing project, but they have also won a Glyph Award and been nominated for two Eisners!
Please help us get Volume Two on the shelves!


ONLY 50 HOURS LEFT…

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm….

Just saw someone in a tag saying that you aren’t a true Sherlock Holmes fan unless you’ve read the canon.

Nope.

You’re a true fan if you love Sherlock Holmes and John Watson and their crazy stupid adventures.

That’s all you need.

You like the thing.

Not for the first time, my brain woke me up in the middle of the night and this time it whispered “What lessons would they teach at the Sherlock School of Dance?” It then refused to let me go back to sleep until I’d written this silly list. So are you prepared to burn… the dancefloor?

hahahahahaha ohmygod I guess then I am all for Hudson Hustle as I do bellydance!
